Use a low(er) power setting.

A lot of people use the microwave to start a potato. About 2-3 mins, then some oil and salt and finish in 375oven for 20-30 mins.

I would use a real oven. I moved the nuker into the garage 12 years ago and don't miss it. While waiting for the potato to bake nicely in the oven (rubbed with olive oil and sea salt) enjoy a glass of chianti !
